There are also some promising social networking functionality built in — such as getting paid to recommend good music to the community. Looks promising — and Barenaked Ladies new album is on there. They should be credited as one 'big band' that has decided to embrace online distribution both on places like iTunes (with DRM obviously) as well as eMusic and various other DRM-free sites!"
